Experience Chinese Culture With the 2017 Auspicious Longevity Proof Set

Chinese culture is among the oldest and most respected on earth. Within Chinese culture exists Auspicious Culture, a prominent philosophy based heavily on symbology and themes that bring good fortune. Now you can get a double dose of this unique and revered philosophy thanks to this two-piece gold & silver proof set.

Bats, which are featured on the reverses of both proofs, represent good fortune, while peaches, which are also incorporated into the design, represent life and longevity. These coins share the same obverse design as well, the national emblem of the People’s Republic of China. That emblem consists of five stars arranged above the Tiananmen Gate of Beijing’s Forbidden City.

Today, many Westerners view such symbols as the ones used in these designs little more than superstition, but in China, they remain very much important parts of the culture. Even many of those who do not believe in the symbols having any real effect, though, are happy to recognize them as symbols of well wishes. Of course, the elegance and exotic designs from the East are more than enough to entice collectors who enjoy variety within their collections! Whether you believe in Auspicious Culture or not, don’t count on good luck enabling you to get these coins later! Order your set today
